Natural Sanctuary


Natural elements and warm tones create both visual interest and comfort in this modern living area. Vaulted, pine tongue and groove ceilings define the room’s rustic appeal, and the use of varied woods in the furniture pieces brings in the outside. The wooden relief on the television console, antique oak coffee table, dark hardwood dining table, Italian painted chairs, and varied wood tones on the wet bar blend seamlessly into the overall design. Leather sofas in deep charcoal are family friendly and provide a refined masculine appeal. Touches of industrial design are present in the bar stools and clean lines of the dining chairs. Antique mirrored end tables, updated lamps, and fresh patterned throw pillows add transitional style to this updated family room.
